Sarah Palin

What I like about Sarah Palin: she is a post-feminist, professional woman. She doesn't so much reject Establishment Feminism: she just ignores it. She has a collaborative relationship with her husband, not, as far as I can tell, an adversarial or competitive relationship with him. He is not an obstacle to her life goals: he is a help and support to them. And her life goals include accepting children lovingly from God, in fact, all the children God may choose to send her.
For all these reasons, she is a complete mystery to most of the mainstream media, including much of the conservative media that should be sympathetic to her. Notice the WSJ: and here. They talked about her reform streak. They seem to be clueless about why her life story is so exciting to so many women.
